Two persons brutally killed by the Maoists
These two barbaric incidents created terror among the public and government officials. Most of the government officers who have been posted at Narayanapatna, Bandhugaon, Machhkund and Onkadelli in Koraput district, are not going to their place of posting or working places, and are simply sitting in the District Headquarters in Koraput and getting their salary.
BALARAMA NAIK, 27 years, of Tentuligumma village under Boipariguda Police Station limits in Koraput district, was brutally killed by the Maoists on the night of May 2, according to a police source. Balarama Naik happens to the one of the close family members of the freedom fighter Sahid Laxman Naik to whom the then British Courts in India, under British Government, passed a hanging order and hanged way back in 1942. It is the fate of the most of the tribal families those who have been killed before and after Independence.
Balarama Naik who owned a small shop, was the only earning member of the family in his remote village Tentuligumma, bordering the district of Odisha and Chhatishgarh. According to DIG of Police (SWR), Soumendra Priyadarshi, a group of Maoists dragged Balarama Naik, at night, out from his house on Wednesday night. They later tied the victim and slit open his throat.
Balarama was a police informer; the Maoist claimed, which was denied by the police officials. Police officials also said it was cold blooded murder by Maoists with an aim to increase their region of terror in these remote areas.
In an another incident, Subal Seal, 45 years old, of Malkangiri Village of Malkangiri district was killed on the road on May 4 at about 9:30am in the presence of the public. He was dragged at about 9:30am while he was walking on the road and slit open his throat. Maoists suspected him as a police informer according to the small piece of paper left very near to the dead.
